A pretty scene and a well taken shot from an interesting point of view. Nice one Ron.


Comment by Janet ( FL ) on 1st September 2013 at 02:26
I like this a lot.. With the reflection of the bridge in the water , it makes a 'frame' for the swans... Lovely!!!!


Comment by Lizzie down under on 1st September 2013 at 05:11

Comment by Bren on 1st September 2013 at 08:14

Isn't that just perfectly framed.

Ron,that's just lovely..as pretty as a picture.


Comment by Harry C. on 1st September 2013 at 09:12
Good timing Ron, if that's crack beak and family it seems like one cygnet is missing. Wait for the anti bird comments!


Comment by maggie. on 1st September 2013 at 09:36
What a lovely composition, well done, the swan family look great!


Comment by Mick on 1st September 2013 at 10:36
Just needed another step to the right to make it perfect.

A remarkable shot. Even after 50+ years, I knew exactly where it was taken without reading the caption.
